This is a long Martin & Sylvia story divided into three parts: "Family Reunion", "Stories by the Fire", and "Looking for Mermaids". The story follows the delightful events of a summer adventure to the Thousand Islands for a family reunion, a celebration of imagination, and a hunt for Mermaids!
About the Stories
Part One: "Family Reunion"
Brother and sister learn that the extended family of cousins has been invited to gather in a magical place called "Mermaid Island"! Once a summer camp for boys and girls, Mermaid Island is filled with stories -- particularly stories of mermaids! Martin & Sylvia are beside themselves with excitement when they meet their host, cousin Daniel, a magical writer and storyteller, who welcomes them to a weekend of fun.
Part Two: "Stories by the Fire"
Daniel brings all the cousins together for an evening of stories. But he's not the only one telling stories -- everyone is encouraged to share stories and discover what they all have in common. Sylvia finds that she has a LOT in common with Cassie - a distant cousin who also enjoys building fairy houses, dressing up in costumes and now, a desire to see a real mermaid!
Part Three: "Looking for Mermaids"
Sylvia and Cassie get up early to look for real mermaids on Mermaid Island and find some magical clues - including some inspiring stories from both Momma and Daniel.
